MOORESVILLE – Acknowledging the protest path many are taking to express opposition to events in Ukraine by shunning traditional Russian-made products, a nearby publication recently ran a list of places to acquire vodka.

The list was a nice tool if your daily travels take you through Durham or Chapel Hill or part of Charlotte, but if your tastes run toward vodka and you want a local supply, Murto Made Distillery is stocked and waiting.

With locations on Ramah Church Road in Huntersville and North Main Street in Mooresville, Murto has plenty of its locally made, signature Carolina Vodka on hand. Murto also produces other spirits, but vodka has been the mainstay on the menu since Jon Murto envisioned his speakeasy a few years ago in Huntersville.

Fifths, at $29.91, are ready to go at both shops.
